A Guide To Spring Stripes By Location
Word on the street: it’s the season of stripes. Okay, okay we know. Stripes for spring are, just like florals, groundbreaking in the sarcastic way. But this year it’s not just one particular stripe ruling our wardrobes but any and every stripe under the sun. Bold, subtle, wide, narrow, pinstripe, nautical... you name it, you can (and should) wear it. Frankly, all these options are making us a little dizzy.
So, let’s straighten this zebra out. We’re breaking down stripes by location this spring. Our weeks are non-stop jam-packed bouncing around from one place to the other. It’s hard to catch a breath let alone decide which stripe to sport where. But, don’t worry, we got you. From the office to mandatory grocery runs, we narrow down which stripes are best.
Can we get an amen for weekend brunch? It’s the best. Sport Caron Callahan’s warm yellow pinstripes to your fave spot with the ladies next time. The dress is flattering yet roomy, and there is just something about this buttery yellow that just screams breakfast goodies.
We love this new style from the Los Angeles-based designer. Their classic navy and white stripes have a nautical feel, but with a modern twist. You can spend all day playing at the park with your kids wearing them and they’re great for afternoon picnic lounging as well.
Sure the office is a place of business, but isn’t there always a party in the back?. Assembly’s top gives you both of those things. The white and black stripes are sophisticated and totally classy, while the overlapping fabric gives it a playful side.
Go bold for happy hour fun with a mini dress. The combination of the tangerine, navy and white stripes, along with a slight sheen, makes it a real eye-catcher. Plus, it’s fun to show some leg after 5pm.
This dress is the perfect piece for an afternoon at the museum. The neutral stripes are nice and subtle, letting the art around you pop. We wouldn’t want you getting lost in a Gene Davis piece.
A chambray stripe is guaranteed to sit well with the in-laws. This wrap blouse has a refined feel with a shirt collar and cap sleeves, but it also lets you work your personality with oversized ties that can be worn multiple ways. Warning: flowers not included, so make sure to bring some.
Is it just us, or do some weeks mean going to the grocery store every other day? Seriously, how is the fridge always empty? For this mandatory outing, we love Rachel Antonoff’s striped cotton t-shirt dress. It’s easy to throw on and that pink, navy and white color combo is freaking adorable.
Going to a vineyard may not happen often (if it does for you then please, let’s swap lives) but when the opportunity comes up, it’s the ideal time to rep a statement stripe. The Sage dress by WHIT is an easy winner. The candy cane stripe gives off nothing but summer-y vibes and has wine tasting written all over it.
Ah, the dreaded airport. We are big fans of a jumpsuit for this crazy place. They are the most stylish way to feel like you’re wearing pyjamas. The Lemlem Edna jumpsuit is relaxed like your PJs but the handwoven stripes add a bold contrast and will bump your airport style above everyone else's.
